US President Joe Biden has said he intends to run again for presidency in 2024, but “ultimately” it is going to be a “family decision”.
That decision might come as early after the Christmas-New Year timeline, he indicated.
“Our intention is to run again. That’s been our intention, regardless of what the outcome of this election was,” Biden told reporters at a White House news conference.
“The fact that Democratic Party outperformed anything anyone expected and did better than any off-year presidency since John Kennedy is one that gives everybody, like, “Hoo” — sigh of relief — that the mega Republicans are not taking over the government again, et cetera,” he said.
“And so, my judgment of running, when I announce …Now, my intention is that I run again. But I’m a great respecter of fate. And this is, ultimately, a family decision,” Biden said in response to a question.
He said he thinks everybody wants him to run again for the presidency.
“But we’re going to have discussions about it. I don’t feel any hurry one way or another to make that judgment today, tomorrow, whenever, no matter what my predecessor does,” Biden said, referring to a major announcement coming from Donald Trump on November 15.
“My guess is it would be early next year when we make that judgment,” he said when asked about the timeline.
